That fasciae are more than muscle sheaths is proven by Tom Myers in his book Anatomy Trains. Here, for the first time, the anatomy and function of fasciae or myofascial connections are dealt with specifically and in great detail.
For easy understanding, the author uses the metaphor of railroad lines, rails and tracks, which must correspond with each other.
Tom Myers describes the most important myofascial pathways and functional connections for posture and movement. Anatomical and embryological principles help to understand, comprehend, and translate these into practice.
Anatomy Trains is a must for anyone involved in posture and movement, e.g., physical therapists, osteopaths, movement therapists, athletic trainers, Rolfer.
The book contains:
- a clear presentation of the most important myofascial meridians
- anatomical and embryological basics- information and hints for the assessment of posture and movement patterns
- practical application tips for manual therapy, bodywork and movement education
